Statement of Need

Despite the development of investigational and therapeutic options for prostate cancer, a lack of consensus among clinicians regarding patient management in early disease stages remains. Patients with locally advanced or metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer should receive androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) after definitive therapy, and it is imperative that clinicians consider luteinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH) antagonists in patients with major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) risk factors. Additionally, must weigh factors that might negatively impact ADT adherence against the choice of ADT. This CMEOCast episode will aim to improve knowledge and competence in integrating the latest data on the management of patients with early-stage prostate cancer by evaluating strategies for its management and differentiating the potential for adverse effects between androgen deprivation therapies

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate strategies for the management of locally advanced castrate-sensitive prostate cancer.
  • Differentiate the potential for adverse effects between androgen-deprivation therapies.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Astellas and Pfizer, Inc.

Target Audience

Urologists, medical oncologists, PAs, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists
